Dear Catholic.com visitor: Summer is here, and you may be thinking about a well-deserved vacation, family get-togethers, BBQs with neighborhood friends. More than likely, making a donation to Catholic Answers is not on your radar right now. But this is exactly the time we most need your help. The “summer slowdown” in donations is upon us, but the work of spreading the gospel and explaining and defending the Faith never takes a break. Your gift today will change lives and save souls for Christ this summer! The reward is eternal. Thank you and God bless.

Fr. Richard Ho Lung

Contributor

Fr. Ho Lung was born and raised on the island of Jamaica. He has dedicated his life to serving the poorest of the poor—the homeless and destitute in some of the world’s worst slums. He founded the Missionaries of the Poor, the religious order that has been recognized by the Vatican and was supported by Mother Teresa. They now house and care for abandoned children, lepers, people with AIDS and others in need in India, the Philippines, Haiti and Jamaica.

A primary source of revenue for the Missionaries of the Poor is the music written by Fr. Ho Lung. Much of his music is distinctly Caribbean-sounding but transcends all cultural and ethnic boundaries. Strong in its rhythms, free in its natural melodic flow, Fr. Ho Lung’s powerful, emotional songs have been sung at Papal Masses and used in Catholic liturgies and other worship services.
